The nominations for the 2020 Golden Globes are here and, as you know, it’s an honour just to be nominated.
It’s better to win.
This will be the 77th instalment of the awards show and you’ll find out who gets a statue on January 5, 2020.
According to Vox, this is the “fun show” where alcohol is served (it’s not served at the Oscars), which is probably why the attitude at the ceremony tends to be a little more light-hearted.
Ricky Gervais is hosting, so you know those present might be squirming in their seats a little.
Back to the nominations, and people are already pretty upset about the films, actors, and so on that made and didn’t make the cut.
Here’s The Daily Beast:
There were some things that were just so Golden Globes that happened: Big love for Netflix’s The Politician and Apple TV+’s The Morning Show, splashy, expensive shows that weren’t huge hits with critics. Of course they went gaga for The Two Popes and Joker.
Other things were more inexcusable, like a cringe-inducing myopia when it comes to diversity, with the Exonerated Five limited series When They See Us being snubbed completely, once again, no female directors or screenwriters nominated, and no film directed by a woman in the Best Picture race.
Sigh. Will Hollywood ever learn? For more on the above grievances, go here.
